How Our Music Helps in the Classroom
Raises Test Scores
Combined with a strong academic program, Music Notes projects have been shown to help increase student test scores. Over half of the students in our first focus group increased their state standardized test scores by 10 points or more and 35% had their overall performance band improve.
Ready To Use
Our songs and videos are a quick, simple way to enhance any classroom lesson right away. Teachers can play a song or video related to what they are teaching and students will have a catchy melody to help them remember key concepts.
Common Core Aligned
Music Notes songs and videos are a unique, engaging way to review and reinforce common core standards for students of all learning styles. All of our latest projects are aligned to the Common Core math standards, which are listed on our printable song lyrics that are available as free downloads on our website.
With CD’s starting at $10, Music Notes projects are a low-cost resource that can be used by teachers all year long and for years to come.

Our music gets results
Data was collected from Mr. Q‑U‑E’s first class after completing the Mind of a Mathman album. This “Algebra Readiness” class consisted of 8th grade students that failed math the previous year. All students were performing Below Basic or Far Below Basic on the California Standards Test.
In a 2016 survey of teachers currently using Music Notes songs or videos in their classrooms:
saw an increase in student test scores
saw an increase in student retention
saw an increase in student engagement
have or would recommend Music Notes to another teacher

What Others Are Saying About Us
Lamar and David were charismatic, approachable, and highly entertaining performers, easily winning over the children in the audience with their humor and smiles. I highly recommend hiring Music Notes to come to your district and inspire both students and teachers with their educational songs and music videos.Stephanie RossDistrict Math Specialist, Oakland USD
I was delighted to see our students celebrate academics and even homework during the assembly. The one hour presentation integrated algebra lessons, pop quizzes, and songs—captivating our middle school audience. It was an ideal way to reward our students for their hard work and still keep the focus on academic achievement.Andy HilbertAssistant Principal, Andrew Carnegie Middle School
All the teachers I spoke with thoroughly appreciated your presentation and the materials they received, and they plan to implement aspects of the PD in their respective classrooms. The Math teachers especially benefited from the individual conversations you had with them and appreciate your willingness to support them with further questions that they may have.Ogochi Okoye Johnson, Ph.D.Dean of Academics, Magnolia Science Academy
I'm in Mr. Bledsoe's homeroom and we love your music!!! I hear people singing your songs in the hallway all the time 🙂HopeStudent
Mr. Q‑U‑E u r a BEAST!!!! Because of you I can actually have math in my head on the weekends. And I luv how u make raps and songs to catch the attention of a younger audience. U R the best!!!!ShawnStudent
Music Notes is modeling one of our 21st century skills - creativity in mathematics education. I can see teachers inspired by Music Notes taking some of the math concepts that Common Core standards will allow us to develop deeper learning around - e.g. the infamous fractions - and weaving the tales of the concepts into song/rap/dance.Lisa Usher StattsPresident Elect, California Math Council, Los Angeles, CA
